Yes, it is possible to use many Windows games and applications using Linux. There is a peice of software named WINE that can be used along or along with some other tools that make the process easier.
Wine allows you to create one or more directories that serve asfake windows installation(s). Its tools allow for using either the emulated or native Windows libraries, setting up some options, mapping devices, etc.
Notable additional titles that help the process are winetricks and PlayonLinux. The first aids with getting Windows libraries and whatnot installed --things your software made use. The second uses the equivalent of templates to create known-to-work setups for your specific title.

Wine, winetricks, and PlayonLiunux are all free but do accept donations .

There are some windows games that can run on Linux. However, windows wants to keeps it competitive edge by making games playable only on its platform. I would recommend to stick with windows if you game alot on that platform. If you want to plays those same games on windows, I will point you to a free Linux program named "wine". It is design to run windows applications on a Linux system. Look first at the wine website www.wine.org and see if you game is compatible. If so, you are free to install. There are other programs that can play windows games. They come at a cost. I have only used wine which is what I used. Yet if you like I will highlight them, only by request.
